Old favorites, new colors.

December 5, 2019

Old favorites in new colors for Stelton and their award-winning and timeless EM77 thermos with the unique, patented rocker stopper was created by Erik Magnussen in 1977 which is one of Stelton’s best-selling designs of all time and for a good reason. A classic can almost never be out of style and it will fit in any kitchen or environment. I shot a small editorial for the new colors and the beautiful light grey popped out to me.  In the same line now can also be found an electrical kettle ( as shown above) , a tea maker and a french press ( as shown below), again in the same light grey color. In the same simple idiom as EM77 vacuum jug, the EM77 press coffee maker holds eight cups, and its double walls keeps the coffee warm for longer. Perfect for gifts this season, I have often times find it hard to choose a color. I already have 3 different colors throughout the years in my cabinets and I usually change them around according to the season or the occasion. In all honesty I was mostly excited for their electrical kettle, the design is simply fantastic. The electrical part goes completely under so when it is plugged in and in use you only see a small cord and nothing else (observe photo below). I have trouble thinking of an electric kettle I would prefer having , and that I can say wholeheartedly.

Favorite beach towels from Greece : Sea You Soon

July 19, 2018

The last time I was in Greece a couple of weeks ago, I discovered a Greek brand with the most beautiful beach towels. Sea you Soon, founded by two Greek brothers Grigoris and Konstantinos , has a lot to be proud about, the collections are filled with elegant lines that give out minimalistic vibes and a sense of nomadic touch, but equally importantly the quality is outstanding. I was not surprised to find out that each towel is going through extensive quality control, although I did not expect that every single towel is looked thoroughly for any imperfections, something I find quite impressive. The guys are very proud of their product line and they have every reason to be. I am also proud being Greek myself to see such beautifully locally made products going out into the world. They look even better after a few washes, yet another quality tick on my box. I use them as beach towels, lay them down on grass to sit, drape them around me when cold, after shower, as tablecloths for outside (they are so soft they drape so nicely over the table), sarong around the body after having a swim, blankets, the list can go on. I know you can find them in various resellers al around Scandinavia, if you want to support a company that makes amazing towels, I highly recommend them! They come in so many beautiful colors as well, if you visit the online store make sure to check some of them out. The one you can see in this post that I used to sit on the pier, is the Capraia towel, in Black color. They ship in any country by the way, if you need great quality, truly beautiful photogenic towels ( just a tip for all content creators out there 😉 these products are my tip for the summer. Take them with you to that vacation, use them at home, they are lightweight and will fit even in the smallest beach bag!

Amidst the summer days we are having in Oslo, there are some local news that should help take some of the heat off..literally! Abate is relatively a new brand on the scene , but the quality is what for me sets them apart. With a 400 thread count, made of Egyptian hand picked cotton, you are guaranteed a good nights sleep. 

And this is how it all started, Kristian and Leo, two friends who discovered how difficult it was to find good bedding for a good price. They mean high quality, high comfort and good design should not cost a fortune and they have done exactly so. Do read on their quality, it is quite impressive!Their weaving and stitching is carried out in a family-run factory, almost one hundred years back, in the Guimarães district of northern Portugal. They manufacture consciously at this factory specifically to ensure the quality of production, the conditions of textile workers and the environment. In their words : 

The strength of the threads and durability of the fabric allows you to get a product that lasts and lasts quality over time. Then you do not have to swap as often. We wish that it will give both you and the environment long-term value.

I already have a pair of sheets in white but now Abate has launched 2 different shades of grey to choose from, with the latest addition a dark grey. And how is this related with the summer days? Take my word for it, you wont sweat it, pun intended 😉

Scandinavian Scents for this Summer

June 14, 2018

This beautiful summer that has been bestowed to us is a blessing, all Scandinavians will remember it as the Summer of 2018. But with temperatures this high the need to smell good is bigger that ever and with a huge selection of Scandinavian perfumes to choose from, it feels like match made in heaven. Below I am presenting you some of my favorites, do read on, the choice is yours!

1 :: Byredo was launched in Sweden in 2006 by Ben Gorham at the age of 31 years old, after an inspiring encounter with perfumer Pierre Wulff. The native Swede didn’t have a formal training in the field, but he sought out the services of world renowned perfumers to whom he carefully explained his olfactory desires. Bibliotheque is back in stock and just in time, I had just finished my previous bottle!

2 :: The designer Ann Ringstrand, born in Sweden, has created fashion since early 1990. She teamed up with perfumers in Paris to design her own niche perfume line made in France. The concept developed a fragrance series with ceramic ware for scent diffusing among others that is available now. All 3 perfumes are exquisite, you just have to try them!

3 :: AGONIST is a Swedish Perfume House launched 2008. Today AGONIST is regarded as one of the most sought after and unique brands within the international niche market of perfumes. The unique and dramatic artistic expressions from AGONIST is derived from the beauty of Scandinavian nature and culture. AGONIST is founded by the creative couple Christine and Niclas Lydeen.Solaris is inspired by the vibrant midnight sun that never sets during summers in the North. Fresh, citrusy and warm, this fragrance is as magical as refreshing.

4 :: Son Venin is a new Norwegian perfume brand with headquarters in Oslo. With a respectful and discreet approach, Son Venin creates experimental, intimate perfumes that fuse a continental feeling with their Scandinavian background. Le Voleur is an elegant and seductive scent, that mingles together the freshness of a white bouquet and modern iris with sensual incense and gaïac wood. 

5 :: A native Icelander, Andrea Maack graduated from the Icelandic Art Academy with a degree for Fine Arts. What began as a series of scent-focused exhibitions by Icelandic visual artist Andrea Maack quickly became a line of unisex, appealing perfumes that walk the line between commercial and Avant-garde. Created for an art exhibition, the theme for Smart comes from an empty white gallery space. At first it emits substance and intimacy but as you spend more time and delve deeper the visceral moods unravel, revealing the sensual and the seductive. Smart opens with a luxurious line-up of heady jasmine, luscious vanilla, exotic sandalwood and creamy musk blended carefully with a subtle buckskin leather note that holds the white notes in balance.
